Client Testimonials

 

I am an avid bowhunter with limited time away from work, so booking with good outfitters is a must. If you are looking for a high quality bear hunting operation, this is the place.

Kevin and his staff give 100% to make sure you have a great time and a successful hunt. They do their absolute best to put you on a quality bear and their hard work will definitely be noticed.  

I bagged my first black bear the first evening and was very satisfied with this bear.

The atmosphere around camp made the rest of the stay relaxing and enjoyable.

A special thanks to Kevin and his team for making this trip a memory that will last a lifetime.

Great trip, met all my expectations!

Kevin, Gerarld, Joey and Angie were great, enjoyed talking with Perley as well.

Took a 275 lb bear the 2nd night with my compound after missing with the longbow the 1st night.

Met some great guys from PA and hope to be back soon.

Great trip!!

I dreamed about this trip for years, I will have dreams about my experience for a lifetime.

Everything about this trip went above & beyond my expectations. I never thought I would have the opportunity to arrow a 78” 400 lb bear. I’m glad I had such a great group of hunters to share it with.

People back home are going to get tired of hearing me tell stories of this trip.

Thank you again Kevin, this trip meant the world to me & I guarantee I’ll never forget it.

What a trophy.

This was my third trip here. Again-just a wonderful time of fellowship and hunting with fellow hunters and big paw five star staff.

Great food with Angie (five star cook). Thankful to Kevin and the entire staff for their hard work. With their help I was able to get another New Brunswick bear, but this one was special, first with my bow.

Thank you all very much!

Jonathan Foster

This has been a very good week of hunting, relaxing and fellowship.

Kevin and the guides were great. I will be back, one of the best hunts I have been on.

Second year here!

It was another great hunt. Saw bears 3 out of 4 nights.

Tagged out on the 4th night, Kevin and crew were great. 3 bears off the otter brook road with bows same night with my buddies - Awesome.

Good hunt.

Tony Gardner

This was the hunt of a lifetime!

I encountered the largest bear in the history of my hunting career. My guide Joey, Kevin and my friends worked hard to track this bear but it was able to move on…

I will be back in the New Brunswick woods for sure.

Awesome hunting experience!

Mark Murphy
West Boylston, M


Had a great time!

Even the Guides brought the same enthusiasm for the hunt that the hunters did. Kevin really works hard to give you the best opportunity to score.

The guides Gerarld and Joey also made the hunt enjoyable. Got my first bear had lots of fun, lots of food and great company.

Good hunt!

Just recently hunted with Big Paw Outfitters for the first time and from the moment I arrived it was more like visiting with old friends.  This was my 3rd bear hunt and I would have to say my best,  from the camp atmosphere to the attention paid to the most minute hunting details,  not to mention the numerous black bear sightings our group saw.

All I can say is this is a first class operation and as far as I am concern the only New Brunswick black bear Outfitter I will hunt with again.

Tony Rubin

Thank you for a great time again.  It gets better every year.  You all do such a great job.  Have a good year, keep in touch and see you next year.

Kevin and Big Paw Outfitters

I had a great hunt with you guys for both the fall bow season for bear and the three day moose season. I saw at least 8 bears that I could have shot, but chose not to, in 3 days of hunting.

Moose hunt was all I expected, and more. There were 3 non-residents and 2 residents with tags and all killed a moose by end of season. 4 bulls and 1 nice cow. I can't imagine how a person could ask for more. All of the guides were top-shelf, the cook was great, the accommodations were first class.

I would highly recommend Big Paw to anyone drawing a moose tag, and for a bear hunt. Nobody can guarantee you a moose, but this is as close as you'll come to a sure thing. I intend to apply again and, if drawn, will certainly hunt with this outfit again. I will gladly talk to or email anyone interested in this outfit, and I give Kevin permission to give out my phone number or email address to anyone interested. Again, thanks for a great hunt. ( by the way, moose meat is extremely good)

Best hunting trip I've ever had. Kevin knows his stuff and we'll definitely be back next Spring for another New Brunswick black bear hunt with him.

Micheal Sharf
Manhasset,  NY


Being a traditional long bow hunter, harvesting a black bear presented a big challenge which really got my adrenaline going. 

A successful hunt means different things to different people. I had a true successful hunt and a memory that I will never forget and I never harvest the bear I was after.

Kevin Caissie and Big Paw Outfitters did everything humanly possible to make my trip successful.  I had a 50 minutes chess game with a bear , that gave me a thrill that will last me a lifetime! 

When I left Big Paw Outfitters I not only was pleased with my hunt and 4-wheeling,  I also left with a new friend Kevin.  He gave us 100% each and every day,  and I will not hesitate to return to get that black bear that beat me in that chess game!

Have a smooth release!

Thank you Kevin for everything

My trip started up as just a bear hunt and wound up to be one of my greatest fishing adventures. Spent 3 days on the Miramichi river, caught the coverted Atlantic salmon on the fly rod. It was one of my greatest thrills. Accommodations, food and most of all a great crew.

I flew in on the afternoon after 24 hours of traveling, I shot my bear that night at about 9:05. I was so tired that night and so glad I was able to lay down in my stand and take a nap before taking my bear!

Thanks a bunch for everything!

Great Outfitter, I have been to Quebec and taken a bear in 2005, but Kevin is far better then any outfitter I have ever seen.

The guides, cook, friends and people here in New Brunswick are the finest in the world. We seen several bears, had a great time, great food and great friendships forever. I took a female 250 lbs and the whole week was a lasting memory.

Thanks Kevin

Wow, were do I start, great Lodge, great food and the friendliest people you can ever meet. Kevin is definitely the bear guy in my book ( also part blood hound ).

Thanks Kevin & Anita for the memory of a lifetime.

W.R. Elrod
Haughton, Louisiana


This is my first guided bear hunt and it met all of my expectation. Although I didn't get a bear I had a great time and will come again. I saw bear but couldn't get a shot because I couldn't see the pin on my bow sight because it was to dark. Kevin did an excellent job putting us on bears and runs a great outfit. I would recommend this hunt to anyone and look forward to coming back next year.

Stacy Jackson
Severn, Maryland


This week will be a week to remember, camp was outstanding and a great group of guys. Kevin and Joey worked their asses off going above and beyond what needed to be accomplished in order for us to have a successful hunt. This trip was a good time and I would recommend this hunt to anyone.

Big Paw Outfitters

I just recently returned from a bear hunting trip in New Brunswick with Big Paw Outfitters. Wow, is all I can say. I really don't know where to start. Kevin the owner worked extremely hard for us and you could tell he really cared about our success. The food was incredible. Every day the meals were great. With the outfitter cooking your meals you never know what you are going to get but no complaint from me. Or anyone else in camp. Every day there was something different on the menu. Usually on Thursday one of the guides takes a trip to the coast and picks up fresh lobster for an all you can eat lobster dinner. And it is truly all you can eat. I don't think it was possible to eat all the lobster that was prepared. Our group gave it our best shot but to no avail.

The guides were great as well. They were experienced and were great to work with. They helped make the camp fun and entertaining as well. Everyone in camp saw bear and released an arrow/bullet. I arrowed a really nice boar on this trip.

The accommodations were great. The camp was very clean and had everything you would need for your hunt. This was my third trip to New Brunswick bear hunting and I have found the last outfitter that I will use. As you can tell I highly recommend them for a spring or fall bear hunt.
